Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro renewed his attack on journalists today while discussing coronavirus, telling them, “when one of you fat-asses catches it, the chances of survival are far less.”
The comments were made a day after Bolsonaro threatened to punch a reporter for quizzing him about accusations his wife, the first lady, had received money from a political operative who is the subject of a corruption investigation.
During an event called ‘Brazil Beating COVID’, the president launched a stinging rebuke on journalists who have consistently trashed his coronavirus policies.
“But when one of you fat-asses catches it, the chances of survival are far less. You only know how to use your pens malevolently,” he said.
